A GLASGOW city centre business said it was "forced to close" due to the road closures for the UCI Cycling World Championships.

Tantrum Doughnuts, located on Gordon Street, shared the news on Facebook.

The post read: "Hello everyone, unfortunately, we won’t be able to open our Gordon Street shop today.

"We were promised business access to drop off the doughnuts in the early hours this morning, but after three hours of trying to get in we couldn’t even get remotely close to the shop!

"We’re trying to figure out what to do over the next week as we are devastated - this was going to be a busy and exciting week for the city centre.

"The good news is that our West End and Southside shops will be open today and we’ll have loads of doughnuts, so please pay us a visit! We are offering 25% off purchases of 6 or more doughnuts today only!"

In Glasgow City Council's plan to facilitate the sporting event, an access and egress strategy was included.

This states that city centre businesses are able to access their sites between 8pm and 6am from today until Monday, August 7 and on August 12.

It is not clear if Tantrum Doughnuts tried to drive in during that window.
